Sure,and then again a real pain to do when the kitīs all finished.but that does nothing to fix the real reason for having a bind in the first place! If I was designer for HB,I would have aspired to not do the same annoying errors more than once,twice is bad enough, but this particular bind is getting really old by now! I would like to see Kyosho, or Mugen present a new kit with a bug like that, and even worse if they did nothing to adress it, they would update the part quicker than you could say Yuichi Kanai. Dont get me wrong, i have both HB D812 and D815 V2, and i had the same problem with steering bind,and it was easy to fix for me since i have been fiddling around with rc for 15 years and im not afraid to start cutting and grinding on a brand new kit. But i can imagine this is the kind of thing that could halt a newbie and maybe lose some of that much needed enthusiasm. And thats not good for the future of RC.
